Sometimes when we’re out in the backyard pulling weeds, feeding the fish, or simply not paying attention to what we should be, the dogs decide it would be a good time for a swim. This is particularly true for Maggie, our Golden Retriever. If she had a choice, she’d probably choose to just live in the water. Sascha, our German Shepherd, only goes in the pool because Maggie does, and she can’t let Maggie do anything that she can’t do herself.
Notice how calm Maggie looks, not a care in the world.
Compare Maggie’s calmness with Sascha’s chaotic swimming.
